Dublin-bred singer, songwriter and producer EDEN returns with his new single, “Modern Warfare” today. The track marks his first release since his 2020 sophomore album, no future and finds him building on his ever-expanding sonic palette, easily bouncing back and forth between genres. Listen to the song now below.
As with all his releases to date, the song was self-produced and recorded in EDEN’s home studio in London, and finds him melding modular synths with physical instruments and drawing out the organic qualities of both to create an altogether cerebral delight.
“This song is a meditation on the blurred lines between life and interaction online and irl,” EDEN shares of the track. “There was a time where I had rejected certain aspects of social life by refusing to use the tools of our time, and modern warfare came after a period of reintegration. There is a sense of maturity coming into these spaces and situations after time away, despite how urgent everything can feel. An ability to not be dragged into the reactionary anxiety that is so often associated with social media. This is not to say that there isn’t plenty of anxiety to be found elsewhere – just that knowing what you want from things is a helpful way to avoid getting rekt. Water off a digital duck’s back.”
The music video pictures EDEN getting a helping hand from his friends to get his beat up Toyota Corolla a push to get started. It doesn’t matter that wipers and rearview mirror are broken, or that a door’s missing. It’s about enjoying the ride.
